    From 4th Jan LL will cost £70 per week and £52.50 for LLL. This is because they have lost a long standing battle with HMRC and are now being charged £10 VAT per week, per person.

    It's certainly motivation to get to goal before Jan if nothing else!!

    Disgusting attitude from the government. We're spending money to lose weight with the result that most of us will save the government money in reduced future healthcare costs. And they still want to tax us??

    Any idea what RTM costs will be??

    Oh god I can't really afford it now let alone another £16 per month. I'm definitely going to have to rethink this if I haven't got to goal by then. I'd also be very interested to know what the impact on RTM will be..

    RTM will increase in line with the total increase.
    At £70 a week it's £2.50 per pack/bar

    So RTM will be
    3 packs a day = £52.50
    2 packs a day = 35.00
    1 pack a day = 17.50

    I think that's right. My maths isn't very good!
    LL are still lobbying government for change. No doubt we'll all be signing a petitition very soon!!
